Rick Schwartz is King of The Deplorables

Posted on the 21 February 2017 by Worldwide @thedomains

Hillary Clinton spoke at a fundraiser on Sept. 9, 2016, in New York City. She said the following:

“I know there are only 60 days left to make our case — and don’t get complacent, don’t see the latest outrageous, offensive, inappropriate comment and think, well, he’s done this time. We are living in a volatile political environment. You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables.

And with that Hillary Clinton started a movement that she certainly did not want to be responsible for, around the country Trump supporters started to call themselves “deplorable” or “the deplorables.”

Memes were everywhere,

So how does Rick Schwartz fit in ?

Rick spent $26,742 to acquire the following:

  • Deplorable.com
  • Deplorables.com
  • BasketOfDeplorables.com

Now deplorable.com had been registered since 2000. The other two names were regged the day after Hillary Clinton disparaged Trump supporters. Deplorables.com was registered by an Australian registrant. It then moved to privacy two days later and then Rick. The domain was previously registered but dropped in 2012.

BasketofDeplorables.com was registered under privacy immediately.

There are plenty of people making money off the deplorable brand.

Here is a tshirt at TeeSpring.com

Basket of Deplorables

$24.94 for this long sleeve tshirt. This looks to have been part of a fund raising campaign. The site says this is the last day to order.

Last day to order!

We reached our goal! You can keep buying until the campaign ends!

You can do a Google search and find plenty of people selling apparel and other merchandise.

There are currently 21 different entities with a TM surrounding the terms deplorable,deplorables or basket of deplorables.

Fox News published an article today,

The mainstream media hates deplorables — and they aren’t fond of Trump either

It will be interesting to see if the buzz and use around deplorable(s) lasts for the entire Trump presidency. I am sure Rick can find a creative way to make some money with these names if he decides to.
